This course is intended to familiarize students with the basic biology of yeast and fungi that are of medical importance. A survey of common mycotic infections and mycotoxicosis is presented. It includes basic hands-on laboratory exercises involving the microscopic examination of samples and isolates, collecting samples for culturing yeast and fungi, preparation, inoculation and incubation of media, identification of yeast and fungal morphotypes (both microscopic and on culture media) using dichotomous or pictographic schemes, field studies and laboratory experimentations.

This course is a study of plant and animal interactions in their natural environment and the influence of man on these natural systems. Active learning components may include outdoor activities and/or field trips. Designed for non-majors. Honors level content. Permission of the Honors director is required.
This course is a primer to prepare students to succeed in a biology or anatomy and physiology courses. The course focuses on developing and improving study skills and emphasizes personal accountability. Course content includes a review of basic math, biology, chemistry and cells and introduces anatomical terminology and body basics. This course cannot be used as a substitute for BSC 2010C.
Students will be introduced to the most common lifestyle on earth: parasitism! This course will be a broad survey of parasites of humans, domestic and wild animals. Major topics will include ecological and evolutionary aspects of parasite-host interactions with an emphasis on life cycles, anatomy and physiology of parasites and immunological, pathological and clinical responses of hosts to parasitic infection. The treatment and control of parasites will also be discussed.
This course is primarily for science majors or students with a strong biology background. It is a study of the molecular and cellular composition and function of living organisms. Emphasis will be given to structure, chemical metabolism and genetic mechanisms. Laboratory illustrates basic biological principles. Lab fee required. This class satisfies the General Education State Core Science requirement for A.A. degree seeking students.
A continuation of General Biology I, this course is designed for science majors or students requiring a full year of biology. Emphasis will be given to evolutionary relationships of living organisms. Structure, form and function of both plants and animals will be studied and ecological principles summarized. Required laboratory will correlate with lecture topics. Lab fee required.
This is the first part of a two-semester course that investigates in detail the structure and function of humans. The course is primarily designed for students of healthcare professions, biology or physical education. We will utilize a "system" approach, examining each organ system at the cellular, tissue, organ and system levels and discuss interactions with other systems. Emphasis will be placed on the homeostatic rather than the dysfunctional individual. Lab fee required.

This is a travel/study course combining preparation on campus, travel and study in the discipline of biology. Content is variable depending on the program in which the student enrolls and the specific topics to be covered. Students must be 18 years of age on or before departure. Department consent is required for registration.
This course covers a broad range of environmental issues that provide a foundation for the understanding of the interactions between human behavior, technology and the natural environment. Course content provides an introduction to issues of biodiversity, appreciation of human impact, principles of sustainability, biotechnology, resource conservation, legal and policy issues and ethics.
The course is designed to provide students with a basic understanding of what scientific research is and the principles on which it is based. The student will discover their interests in science, technology, engineering or math and learn how to identify problems to study, develop hypotheses, research questions and specify independent and dependent variables or the importance of research ethics. The student will also be exposed to the broad range of research institutes in Central Florida.
This course is intended for STEM (science, math, engineering and computer science) majors of pre-med/dent/vet and health care students.
